Rarely do you find mature, high quality Haut-Médoc at such an affordable price. Ramage La Batisse 2009 is outstanding – don’t hesitate to buy this cru bourgeois by the case to enjoy over the next decade. Velvety with evolved fruit and subtle oak.
"Bordeaux 2009 – the greatest vintage Bordeaux has ever produced"
Steven Spurrier Decanter Magazine
Given that this family owned estate lies just a short stroll from Châteaux Lafite and Mouton Rothschild, you might expect its wines to command hefty prices. Fortunately for us – and you – Château Ramage La Batisse lies just outside the Pauillac boundaries, making its bottle price far more attractive to the average wine lover. Georges Pauli – a winemaker of world renown – is consultant here and in 2009 was gifted a near-perfect vintage. Perhaps then it should be no surprise to learn this remarkable red added another five Golds to the family’s impressive trophy cabinet. With all the classic hallmarks of Haut-Médoc claret – cedar wood, cassis and liquorice complexity – it’s ripe, rounded and harmonious. Superb with game casserole or rare beef.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
